October marks a sad anniversary at the San Pascual Stables. Two years ago, a horse,
KitKat, tragically died in the middle of the night, leaving behind her grieving owners, staff,
riders, and other horse owners. Some closure was finally achieved on August 18, 2018 when a bench in memory of KitKat was installed at the stable by South Pasadena Girl Scout Cadette Katherine Moses.

The bench installation was the Girl Scout Silver Award project for Katherine. To raise
the $400 for the teak bench and memorial plaque, she spent over 50 hours recycling donated cans and bottles as well as baking and selling dog bones and horse treats.
Many gathered on the morning of August 18th for a dedication ceremony.

One of the speakers, barn manager Jette Davis, tearfully described the horse’s death as “the worst day that this stable has ever seen. I hope no one ever experiences anything like that again.”

After the dedication ceremony, all at the stable were invited to celebrate the life of KitKat
with food and drinks that Katherine provided with extra money she had raised.
The Girl Scout Silver Award is the second highest honor a Girl Scout can earn, and is the
highest honor a Cadette Scout can earn.
